NASA will soon observe thousands of exploding stars
Today’s Video of the Day from the NASA Goddard describes the upcoming Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope, which will observe thousands of exploding stars called supernovae across vast stretches of time and space.
According to NASA, astronomers hope to use these observations to shine a light on several cosmic mysteries, including how fast the universe is currently expanding.
One of the mission’s primary goals involves studying exploding stars to gain a better understanding of the nature of dark energy, which NASA defines as the unexplained cosmic pressure that’s speeding up the expansion of the universe.
